Just read a few of the last pages.
Think I'm done.
Though I didn't see sages
Neither did I see dumb.

I saw mostly sorrow
And hearts weak and weary
And I think for tomorrow
The forecast is even more dreary.

Enough of that
I'm done.

Perhaps you'd like to write something then, eh?!

Exclamation Message to SeaKing

In Friendship, perhaps... (and then again, perhaps not!)

Critique less harshly – instead join in Friendship!
I write not with honeyed words to win your praise;
I simply let you have my contribution,
Such as you need to cheer your emptier days.

Friendship requires no gilt-edged invitation,
No pathway of stars, no banquet table spread;
Friendship, as such, comes unadorned and humble,
Asking for naught and giving all instead.

Friendship elicits content whate’er the moment,
Sharing the good, the bad, the frowns and smiles;
Friendship extends a broad and amiable shoulder,
And reaches a gentle hand across the miles.

No thoughts have I of falsehood or deception,
Of using such Friendship for some selfish end;
So, if you can say in truth, “I value friendship”,
Take this my hand and I will call you “Friend” !

Arrow Is this thread in terminal disuse ?

This User Poetry thread is about as active as the frozen remains of Ötzi the Iceman!!

Surely it's gotta be somebody else's go next, before I post another of my 'orrible odes...

C'mon folks, somebody please... ???

Post away....I've not done anything recently as I've been focused on prose (unsuccessfully so far ).

Nothing of what I've seen you write can be remotely described as unsuccessful.

As for me going ahead and posting --- Okay, but only after A.N. Other's contribution !

We took the High Road ….

we drove out west before the call of dawn;
the maiden of the night shone bright
her suitors gathered round;

as miles flew past the sky grew hale
those nightly folk did pale;
we watched as mountains far and proud
did shed their nightly gowns;

first they took a tinge of dawn
upon their brows
of greys, of pinks, of mauves;

then as we rose through straths and glens
that teasing light did ease away the shrouds;
and in the silence of the morning glens
we took a breath, so very deep, of
malted grain that hangs and waits
whilst it does age;

the light grew bold and warm,
and on the lofty bens, soft pillows wrapped them round;
a gentle breeze fluffed up the down
and shy became the sun,
so by the noon
the clouds began to cry;

by side of loch, (so dark with peat, and deep,)
the wind began to whip and sculpt
such waves until the mirror dulled;
and followed we the water course
until we passed the shed;

we drove on down the other side
but still the skies were grey;
an eagle flew across our sight
and stag did stand his ground
upon the lofty brae;

we turned and laboured through the rain
up through strath and glen,
again;

the mountain tops were there somewhere
though washed away from view;

but as we dropped the clouds did thin,
and rain we left behind;

we drove on east
as shadows grew
to point the way back home;

the maiden was still a-bed by then
though her suitors were lining up;

It was a day so blessed with life,
it was....
who cares about the rain!

Thumbs up We took the High Road

I second Kenny's sentiments --- full of the colours and feel of Scoland. I love it!

Perhaps between us we can revivify this thread...(?)
